STATE CHAMPS – “Secrets” video released; European tour dates unveiled

The Albany, NY pop punk band STATE CHAMPS has had a busy 2015, first supporting All Time Low on their US tour and most recently touring Australia supporting 5 Seconds of Summer. They will embark this week on a headlining US run, followed by an appearance at Long Island’s Mixtape Festival in August and then a European headlining tour that kicks off in September (all tour dates below).

Formed in 2010, State Champs have released 2 EPs on Pure Noise and their 2013 debut LP“The Finer Things”, which charted at #131 on the Billboard Top 200.  Committed road warriors, they have toured the US and Europe multiple times with the likes of Motion City Soundtrack, Bayside, The Wonder Years, The Story So Far and the entirety of the Vans 2014 Warped Tour.

“Around the World and Back” was engineered by Kyle Black (Paramore, New Found Glory, Strung Out) and produced by Black and State Champs vocalist Derek Discanio.

Lyrics:

You caught me in the right place at the right time, so I’ll just dive right in / Say you’ve got a blank space in your right mind, well here’s my second wind / Oh, your idea of me blown away, away / Something in the past tense didn’t make sense for this to / follow through / What did you expect to happen? Were you mad then with nothing left to do? / Oh, you’re making me sick. What is this? / Had we been drawn to close before? / Because I dropped my forgiveness, it’s lying face down on the floor / I’ve got more secrets than you’ll ever know / Another year and you won’t let it go / Too many times I told myself to hold on / But it’s too late for me, now I’m as good as gone / Funny how we go way back and we said that we wouldn’t let this come between / Everything and is it true that I could look past memories and stay obscene? / Oh, your idea of me blown away, away / Something’s telling me I never could have ruined everything you want in life / Because you never put in effort, and the truth is you were never doing it right / Oh, you’re making me sick. What is this? / Am I the one you can’t ignore? / Because I dropped my forgiveness, it’s lying face down on the floor / I’ve got more secrets than you’ll ever know / Another year and you won’t let it go / Too many times I told myself to hold on / But it’s too late for me, now I’m as good as gone / It turns out I don’t go down that easily / You’ll never really know what this means to me / And no, it wasn’t ever too much to hold / But you stole your own self control / It turns out I don’t go down that easily / You’ll never really know what this means to me / And no, it wasn’t ever too much to hold so just know / I’ve got more secrets than you’ll ever know / Another year and you won’t let it go / Too many times I told myself to hold on / But it’s too late for me, now I’m as good as gone / Not everybody wants an enemy / Call me the culprit and that’s all you’ll see / You were responsible for finding a way to catch on / But it’s too late for me, now I’m as good as gone
